RoamRight medical insurance differs from your standard medical insurance plan – such as one provided by your employer. Many medical insurance plans provide very limited or expensive coverage outside of their service areas – if at all. It’s also rare to have a primary medical insurance plan that will cover any portion of a medical evacuation.
Because you can't foresee a potential medical emergency or issue that may arise during your trip, you should consider travel medical insurance. A travel medical insurance plan from RoamRight can cover sickness and emergency room expenses while abroad, dental expenses, emergency evacuation, and medically necessary repatriation. We also provide a 24-hour assistance hotline that can guide you on immunization/vaccination requirements if traveling internationally, where the nearest “appropriate” medical center or hospital is located (this circumvents visits to underequipped hospitals and avoids the pitfalls of errors from concierges), and the best way to get there (sometimes a taxi is better than an ambulance), as well as other services. Please browse the available insurance plans to learn more.
